Plus additional guests.
Although he carries on the tradition of hand-drawn animation, producer-writer-director-actor-animator Seth MacFarlane’s satirical view of life is anything but old fashioned. He pushes the envelope as far as possible when it comes to roasting sacred cows, frequently evoking the ire of various religious and parental watchdog groups, much to his delight. MacFarlane reigns over the current Sunday night Fox schedule, with his career-defining Family Guy, only the second animated program ever nominated for the Prime Time Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series; American Dad!, a send-up of jingoism; and The Cleveland Show, which proves his humor can cross racial barriers as it depicts a black family as dysfunctional and hilarious as any he has created.
